Meanwhile, the crackdown on Tech Firms is having a chilling effect on the job market as many young Chinese are looking to the for more stable positions, even though they pay less.

There will be 10 million college graduates in China in 2022, according to China's Education Ministry. About 4.5 million have applied to graduate schools, up 800,000 from 2021. More than 2 million people have applied to take civil servant examinations, up by 500,000, according to the Chinese state media.

On the other hand, in mid-December, the country's internet regulator said it had ordered platforms to shut down more than 20,000 accounts of top influencers in 2021, including people who spoke ill of the country's martyrs, entertainers involved in scandals, and major live-streaming stars.
